18 months of 7 Tutorials - Announcing our Winners!

On January 8th we launched our 18 months of 7 Tutorials - Celebrating with the help of BitDefender giveaway. The prizes we offered are 1-year licenses of BitDefender Internet Security 2011 & print copies of Network Your Computers & Devices Step by Step for a few lucky winners. Today it is time to announce the winners. Click on read more to find out if you are one of them.

How the selection was done

We took the list of people which subscribed to our Facebook page and our e-mail newsletter subscribers. Then, we removed those e-mail subscribers which did not activate their subscriptions, plus the subscriptions which were duplicates.

Next, we exported the list into Excel and had some random functions generate the winners plus some "backup" winners, in case somebody does not reply to our messages. We closed Excel, opened it and recorded the lucky winners.

We extracted an equal number of winners for the group of people who entered our competition via Facebook and the ones who entered it via e-mail.


Our winners are the following:


All winners will be contacted shortly, so that they receive their BitDefender Internet Security 2011 license or their copy of Network Your Computers & Devices Step by Step.

The winners for which you see an e-mail address, will be contacted via e-mail. The winners for which you see their names will be contacted via Facebook.

If some of the winners do not reply within a week or simply do not want the prize, the remaining prizes will be sent to the backup winners in the order they are listed in the screenshot above.
